Four permits were presented for review.

Sycamore and E. Maple Streets (address to be determined).

 

Department Reports were presented. Lori Reutter updated council on the resignation of Library Associate Kelly Boothroyd. An ad has been placed in the paper and posted at the library and post office to advertise this vacancy. Applications will be accepted thru the end of September. She also invited everyone to the Orphan Train presentation by guest speaker Lori Vicker on Tuesday, September 17th at 2 pm. Chad Thede updated council on progress at the WWTP. Woodruff is running into a few delays with suppliers and punch lists are now being made. He would like to have the council and staff tour the new facilities tentatively either September 25th or October 2nd. He will send out an email to confirm once plans are finalized for tour.  Dan Buzzell would like the publics help in keeping an eye out for suspicious activity at the City Park. Over the past several weeks there have been several incidents of vandalism to the restrooms and he would like to remind the public that if they see anything suspicious to call and report it. Mick Bailey and Dan Buzzell spoke in reference to the school stop signs when Councilwoman Lori Anderson inquired as to why they changed from regular stop signs, to high visibility signs and then back as well as why they were being left out the entire day.  Jessica Christensen updated council on successful season of baseball, softball and T-ball. There were 201 kids in grades Pre-K thru 6th to participate. Jessica also gave a brief update on the current flag football program and Aces volleyball program. In addition, she voiced concerns over gym space availability with the growing number of participants expected in the basketball programs as well as field availability for baseball and softball if the old Howe School building/grounds are sold. Melanie Olesen wanted to remind everyone that Oktoberfest is October 6th from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm.

 

Public Comment. Robin Good presented the council with information regarding a fast-charging station for electric cars and the potential for Ogden to obtain one to provide additional funding sources to the community. She left the packet of information for City Administrator Clausen to review and research further when she returns to work.

 

LaVerne Lingren presented the Rural Fire Board recommendation from their recent Rural Fire Board Meeting. The Board voted to increase their mileage rate to $.505 and remain at 67%.

 

Adam Good with GoodWealth Financial Partners presented an insurance renewal update the council. Health insurance rates went up nearly 20%. However, comparison was done with other available plans on the Health Marketplace and they are more expensive for fewer benefits. Since the City of Ogden is still covered under a grandfathered plan, his recommendation is to remain with the plan we have. Council verified with employees present regarding their satisfaction and all agreed to keep the plan we have. He will bring documents in to be signed to submit for renewal.
